Re: Why did the AC&Y buy H20-44's?

Well to be honest tractive effort doesn't mean much over 20mph. Above 20mph horsepower DOES. Horsepower moves the same train at a higher speed. I've moved a 54 car coal train witha 1600hp RS3. At 12 mph. I moved the same train over the same territory with a 3000 hp SD40 at 27mph. In a more realistic...

Re: Rimer

I do have a map of Rimer and I have walked everything that is accessible without going on NL&S property. I didn't have room to model the crusher tracks in their entirety so what I did was have one track that holds 2 cars (enough for my scaled down needs) plus a little room. The plan is build the...

Re: Non Revenue Roster

Your best bet for an under frame for the caboose is an Accurail under frame from one of the single sheath (outside braced) cars. They are available separately. It will need to have a section cut out of the middle on spliced back together. I used Tom's drawings to get the length. The Accurail under f...

Re: Onward to Youngstown??

The map with the proposed route required some twists and turns and a pretty stuff grade to get out of the valley at Mogadore. After about the first 2 miles there was only one curve in the line out east of Edinburg if memory serves me correctly. The final destination on the map was Niles Junction wit...

Re: Article Suggestion

Looks Like I better get going on an article on Delphos. Maybe how to incorporate operations into a model railroad? Delphos operations on the AC&Y were pretty simple.

Not sure how long these have been online. Locations are not listed but appear to be: Chatfield (class M in the hole on a westbound), Delphos, New Washington (passenger getting off the train), 2 at Greenwich (meeting 95), and Brittain. http://www.flickr.com/photos/barrigerlibrary/sets/72157640465113305

Re: Combines 261, 262; coach 263 (X-900)

One more shot. These wooden cars may have been built the same time that the Reading cars were. I believe the PWV cars with these trucks were purchased by the Wabash Pittsburgh Terminal new. The PWV in 1951 only shows 2 remaining cars of this design. One coach and a combine that looked nothing like t...
